Clay Bell Pot Ornament
A clay pot bell ornament could be a great present for the grandparents. Paint your pot and while it’s drying punch out stars from craft paper. Pass the twine and bell through your pot and tie at the top. Your kid will have a perfect jingle bell for $15.

Molded Crayons
Molded crayons are crafts that'll teach the kids about recycling. Pop broken crayon pieces into a fun-shaped silicone mold. Bake in the oven until the colors have melted together and let them cool until hardened. For $7 your kids will be able to create new works of art from their old crayons.

Washi Tape Pinecone Turkey
A washi tape pinecone turkey is a cute addition to your Thanksgiving table. Your family can add to the bonding experience and search for pine cones together. Once you’ve collected your flock, line popsicle sticks with washi tape and glue them in the pinecone to mimic feathers. Add a felt beak, snood and googly eyes for a realistic touch. Your new creations will make you “gobble, gobble” for $9!

These low-cost crafts will keep your little ones occupied until it’s time for school again!
